mind about what should have happened. number one, as you close refineries along the eastern seaboard, you should have seen spikes in unleaded gasoline prices. but by the same token, if those refineries are closed, that means that the end users don't need crude. they're not going to buy crude. so that should have been very bearish, the crude oil market. the crude oil market didn't break nearly as much as i expected it to. and the other thing that i noticed is- keep in mind i trade futures. in futures, futures have contract months. the lead month is december, and you trade every single month. so presumably, you would think that the front months of crude would have weakened toward the back months of crude, because, if the end users, i.e. the refineries along the eastern seaboard, if they don't want the crude right now, then they'll pay up and store it and use it later. that didn't happen. you actually saw the front months of crude actually showing some reasonable support to the back months. i totally didn't expect that. so for me, i am not going to sell into this break, and i actually would
